February 2, 2017: Gibson Brands on Sunset, Chris Cuffaro!

The photography exhibition "GREATEST HITS," celebrates the work of veteran L.A. photographer Chris Cuffaro. The opening reception will feature a night of live music and a silent auction on Thursday, February 2 at Gibson Brands on Sunset (former Tower Records space) in West Hollywood (8801 Sunset Blvd). 

SWEET RELIEF MUSICIANS FUND--which provides financial assistance to musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability or age-related problems--will receive 100% of the proceeds of artwork sales from the evening along with a portion of ticket sales via donation.
"GREATEST HITS" marks a premiere retrospective celebrating the work of Chris Cuffaro, a veteran photographer who has hidden in plain sight. Over the past 30 years Cuffaro has worked with celebrated musicians, A-list actors, models and athletes to help them define their public image, while establishing his reputation as one of the most respected photographers in the entertainment industry. Whether glitz and glamour or raw reality, by consistently capturing the "real" person behind the famous face, Cuffarobrings a new level of emotional depth to the two dimensional art form of photography.

To share his story, Chris has chosen 50 photographs that represent the most iconic images, artists and moments in his career--his GREATEST HITS. The exhibition is an experience as visceral as rock n' roll itself, featuring oversize prints, exclusive musical performances, a digital component and a host of tastemakers and influencers from the entertainment, art, media and pop culture spheres, staged in a completely non-traditional environment.
